American Creed: Documentary Screening & Discussion

What does it mean to be American?  What are our unifying beliefs as a body of citizens in the USA?  The idea for American Creed grew out of conversations between two Stanford University professors: political scientist and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and David M. Kennedy, who became a historian in large part to determine whether the United States has a “national character” — what defines it and how it changes over time.  We hope that the stories in American Creed — which speak to our dilemmas, yet offer hope that our shared ideals can prove more powerful than our differences — will engage viewers in a bold conversation about what it will take to uphold American democracy.  Dr. Matthew Murray of Dutchess Community College will lead the community in a discussion after the film.
